I enjoyed your poem, because it talks about one of my favorite sports, soccer.
One thing that stands out for me is that you threw in some Spanish words in there. I believe that makes the poem more interesting and it engages the reader and keeps them hooked. It is also very creative because it shows what type of languages and…[Read more]

Sean, I enjoyed reading your post because I feel the same way you do, not just about Metal, but all other subgenres of Rock. People see it as violent music, like you said or call it ¨music for emos¨ or for goths, not that there is anything wrong with them, but I feel like anyone could listen to it. I have always stuck with Rock music not only b…[Read more]
We all know there is only one thing The Mother of Dragons wants, and that is the Iron Throne. Ever since her family was thrown off and killed, she has been conquering many armies and getting many fighters on
Hello Jillian, I enjoyed your poem and I enjoy these photos. Although this park could look scary at night, it looks like the perfect place to go for a run! We have a few parks here in Austin that have trees surrounding them like this but I do not think they look as peaceful as Prospect Park. You take good photographs, I especially liked how you…[Read more]
Hello Zariya, I enjoyed reading your bio! I feel like we are the same when it comes to being too nice and forgiving, but it is always good and costs nothing to be kind to others. I also enjoy playing the same sports as you, basketball and soccer, but mostly soccer! I look forward to reading more of your posts about you and your siblings.
Dear Orlando, I really like the pictures that you took because it reminds me of the times I have been there. I like going to Mount Bonnell too although I just don’t really like going up the stairs, but i agree with you on the part where you said “You get to take pictures wherever you want.” It seems very great when you get to go on a sunny day because the view is amazing.

Hello Orlando! My name is Sante Di Sera and I am a highschool senior from Salt Lake City, Utah. While you say that you aren’t all too good at any subject, I believe your writing is honest and conversational. With more time to learn and enjoy school, I’m sure you’ll grow to discover what you love. I think it’s amazing that you care so much about stray animals and I’m sure – if you wanted – there is a local animal shelter that you can volunteer at and help animals. Best of luck in your future endeavours!
This is a very positive post. I know it is very hard for everyone to join into a new environment and most of the people don’t like study all day long in school. Because just like you, I like sports too. Also, you action to those homeless animals is very kindness. I hope they all could find their home soon.Great job!
I am satisfied with your post because… I have a passion for stray animals as well.
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “How you were casually talking about daily life and then you switched to the topic of stray dogs” I think this is intelligent because… You are letting people know about your life and then you quickly switched to stray animals
Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time… I found a stray cat and i really wanted to take it in but my mom was saying no.I was really confused why but then i understood that we didn’t have the space so we took it to a shelter
Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because… i really enjoyed reading about how you want to help stray animals.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
